5. Calms & Supports Digestion –
Frankincense essential oil has been known to aid the digestive system and promote relief from gastrointestinal pain, constipation, nausea, stomach aches, PMS, and cramps. Because it speeds up the secretion of digestive enzymes — which allows food to be digested quicker and with more ease as it relaxes the digestive tract muscles — it can stimulate circulation, aid in proper detox to produce bowel movements, and relieve pain from bloating by flushing out excessive water.
To encourage healthy digestion and reduce discomfort, add one to two drops of frankincense oil to a glass of water or a tablespoon of honey. Be sure your oil is 100% pure, therapeutic grade and not a fragrance or perfume oil, if you choose to ingest it. For pain relief, cramps, and nausea rub two to three drops directly onto the abdomen.
6. Prevents Oral Health Problems –
Many people choose frankincense as a natural preventative addition to their oral health routine. The antiseptic properties of this oil can help by inhibiting the production of cavities, bad breath, toothaches and decay, canker sores, gingivitis, and other infections.
If you’re looking for a natural oral care product to alleviate discomfort from dental conditions or just want to prevent bad breath and boost your oral hygiene, check out your local, all-natural health stores and look for products that contain frankincense oil. You can even make your own toothpaste or mouthwash with frankincense if you like to DIY.
7. Helps Regulate Estrogen & Hormone Levels in Women –
For gynecologic conditions, pre and post-menopause symptoms, and hormonal imbalances, frankincense oil can provide a vast amount of relief to all women. Since it helps to regulate the production of estrogen hormones, it can reduce the chances of tumors and cysts being formed, therefore lessening the risk of uterine cancer. It can also be useful to stabilize menstrual cycles for promoting a healthy uterus.
For the relief of symptoms caused by menstruation — such as cramps, headaches, constipation, nausea, fatigue, and mood swings — massage two to three drops of frankincense onto the abdomen area or for severe cramps, add it to a warm towel or compress. Using frankincense in a warm bath and soaking in it, can also provide relief from burning caused by urinary tract infections.
8. Naturally Assists in Fighting Cancer –
Many studies have now shown us that frankincense oil can aid in fighting certain types of cancer cells. Frankincense’s potential cancer-killing properties are due, in part, to its ability to influence genes to increase healing.
Many of those diagnosed and treated for cancer suffer greatly from the side effects caused by cancer treatments. The strength of these medications and treatments can cause a toxic overload in patients, which then causes more side effects for them to endure. But as the research and clinical trials of frankincense grow in results, many scientists and doctors are pushing for it to be a considered prescription alternative to steroids for cancer patients in radiation treatment.
By adding frankincense essential oil to your daily regimen, you’ll not only feel these amazing benefits naturally, but you’ll be also be setting a preventative measure in place to ensure the best, most natural, healthy lifestyle for you and your loved ones!
